The Fifth Grade Problem of the Day documents are designed to provide teachers and parents preparation with the new Ohio’s State Assessment for Reading. They are created to prompt collaborative discussion in the classroom.
There are key components in these documents:
I Can Statements:
The I Can Statements are located underneath each question. The statements provide teachers and parents a clear indication of what standard that particular question is assessing. This gives valuable information on the standards each student is secure with, as well as the ones where the student may require some extra help.
Each week includes a test-taking strategy. These strategies will help prepare our students both at school and at home for the upcoming assessment.
Parent Connection Component:
The Parent Connection component includes questions that parents can use to work with their students. The passage used in the parent connection document is the same passage that is used in the problem of the day activities conducted in class. This will help reinforce close reading at home.
